Improving Train to Gain

• Building to these levels in first year has been a good achievement • But we know improvements can be made…………….… and are needed to deliver expansion • Improvements include:
 stimulating demand through providers to complement that of brokers

 reaffirming Train to Gain as a holistic service for all employers covering all skills levels, not just SfL and L2
 improving processes to reduce bureaucracy and reward performance

Development • “World Class Skills” confirmed the expansion of Train to Gain and highlighted interim outcomes to be detailed within the Delivery Plan. • Funding of £440m in 07/08 rising to over £650m in 08/09
and to over £900m in 2010/11

• LSC will publish Delivery Plan early Nov and will cover actions for the LSC and its partners, including providers, to deliver a challenging expansion • Providers have a clear important role if we are to achieve expansion
